Honey Bee/Detailed Honey Bee Dies

Tie-Dye Hexagons

Tie dye hexagons

I often incorporate paper towels or baby wipes that I have used to blot watercolor, Pigment Sprinkles or to clean off stamps in my crafting.

That was the case with this card.

I used the paper towel I used to blot Pigment Sprinkles backgrounds in various other projects

I love the bright colors and tie-dye effect!

Supplies Used:

Stamp Sets: Honey Bee, Itty Bitty Greetings

Ink: Memento Black, Blackberry Bliss

Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker

Paper: Granny Apple Green, Blackberry Bliss, Whisper White

Accessories: paper towel, Big Shot, Tombow Multi-purpose Glue, Detailed Bee Dies,

Pigment Sprinkles Honey Bee Hexagons

Honey Bee Hexagons Anniversary

Honey Bee Hexagons Thank You

I had left over honeycombs and hexagons from my card HERE, so I decided to pair them with Pigment Sprinkles backgrounds.

I simply spritzed watercolor paper with water, then added Pigment Sprinkles.

For the first card, I used Melon Mambo and Granny Apple Green Pigment Sprinkles.

For the second card, I used Granny Apple Green and Bermuda Bay Sprinkles.

I let the Sprinkles run and pool, then dabbed the paper with a paper towel.

Once dry, I added the honey combs using a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.  I filled in a few of the honey combs with left over hexagons.

The greetings came from Itty Bitty Greetings.

Oops, I should have used the Stamparatus for the greeting on the second card as it came out a little crooked stamped free hand!

Golden Bee Colorful Hexagons

Colorful Hexagons

I paired the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (Sale-A-Bration choice!) with the honeycomb die found in Detailed Bees to make this bright and cheery card.

I cut out hexagons out of Melon Mambo, Granny Apple Green, Highland Heather, and Bermuda Bay card stock.

Then, I simply glued them to the gold and black hexagon-designed paper found in the Golden Honey paper stack using Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.

The greeting is from Honey Bee stamped in Versamark on a piece of Gold Foil paper, then heat embossed with black embossing powder.

Pigment Sprinkles Honey Bee

Pigment sprinkles

The Honey Bee Bundle found in the 2020 Mini Catalog just makes me smile!

This was a quick and easy card to make using Pigment Sprinkles for the background.

I spritzed a piece of watercolor paper with water, then sprinkled on Mango Melody with a small amount of Daffodil Delight Pigment Sprinkles.  I let the color run and pool, then dabbed the excess off with a paper towel.

I cut two of the honeycomb pieces out of Whisper White card stock using the Big Shot and Detailed Bee Die.

Once the background was dry, I attached the honeycomb pieces using a small amount of Tombow Multi-purpose Glue.

The bee was stamped on a piece of scrap watercolor paper using Memento Black ink and the Stamparatus. 

Then, I used the coordinating die to cut it out. 

I used my Crushed Curry Stampin' Write Marker to color the bee's body, and a sponge to add Crushed Curry ink around the edges.

The greeting was stamped using Black Memento ink and the Stamparatus.

The card front was matted to Basic Black, then attached to a Crushed Curry card base.

The bee was added using a Dimensional to pop it up.
